For sizing a horizontal separator it is necessary to choose a seam-toseam  vessel length and a diameter. This choice must satisfy the conditions  for gas capacity that allow the liquid drops to fall from the gas to the liquid volume … Continue reading

Horizontal VS. Vertical Vessel Selection

Horizontal separators are smaller and less expensive than vertical separators for a given gas capacity. In the gravity settling section of a horizontal vessel, the liquid droplets fall perpendicular to the gas flow and thus are more easily settled out … Continue reading

Horizontal Two Phase Separator

Separators are designed in either horizontal, vertical, or spherical configurations. Figure 4-1 is a schematic of a horizontal separator. The fluid enters the separator and hits an inlet diverter causing a sudden change in momentum. The initial gross separation of … Continue reading
